The handmade silver and gold bracelets are embossed with the word ‘Love’ in braille. They are priced between £140 and £190, with five per cent from each sale going to Sightsavers.
Inspiration for the collection came from a trip to Kerala in India before the pandemic. Sisters Kate and Liv, who founded the brand, discovered that many children in the region were blind. They decided to do some good on their return after being inspired by the joy and kindness they experienced during their trip.

Alba Rose worked with the BAJ to create a professional brief for their students to design, develop and create a unique bridal collection that appeals to the retailer’s target audience.
Following a tight competition, student Liv Thurlwell scooped the prize for her collection inspired by the late architect Zaha Hadid.
Ryan Edkins of Alba Rose comments: “Liv's final product matched our brand the best, and the final piece was finished ready for production, I feel her presentation deserved the winning title. That said, I was very impressed by the standard of work presented, and all six candidates should be very pleased with their presentation, it’s clear that they will have a good career in the industry and have gained some very good skills on the course.”
Liv Thurwell’s engagement ring nodded to calla lilies, while the male wedding band kept to a similar theme of organic flower forms. Her designs will now be produced for sale in Alba Rose’s Bluewater store.
